Happy Thanksgiving Friends and Colleagues!
The spectacular Fall colors of the Sierras have been delighting us all around for the last month or so. The vibrant reds, golds and oranges remind us of what a treat it is to live in the Sierra Foothills!
Now Thanksgiving is upon us. Thanksgiving starts what is always a special holiday season in Nevada City and Grass Valley. Our gold rush heritage truly comes alive as Grass Valley hosts its Cornish Christmas celebrations on Friday nights starting this Thanksgiving weekend and continues through December 21. Nevada City hosts its traditional Victorian Christmas on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons starting December 5 through December 23. Share the holiday cheer and good tidings with wandering minstrels and carolers among the street vendors while enjoying festive foods, drinks and more with friends and neighbors on the streets of Nevada City and/or Grass Valley.
Thanksgiving also signals that winter is on the way. In fact ski resorts on Donner Summit just above us are preparing to open for Thanksgiving!
Hot, hot, hot real estate market
“Hot, hot, hot” was the headline for a recent real estate article in our local newspaper. As of the end of September the total number of homes sold year-to-date in Nevada County was up 14% compared to this same period a year ago. Two weeks later October numbers reaffirmed the trend. The supply of foreclosures is down and median home prices are starting to rise also.
While first home buyers and investors have been snapping up homes at the lower end of the market, we are seeing increased sales in the mid and upper price ranges as well. We are receiving multiple offers on properties. Bottom line – it is a great time to buy a new home in Nevada County!
Nevada County Properties/Recreation Realty to celebrate 40 years!
In 2013, we will celebrate 40 years of serving you and Nevada County as engaged real estate brokers. Watch for more details about our special celebration on July 11 in partnership with the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce.
As Thanksgiving approaches we are especially mindful of friends and clients we have served over the past 4 decades – including you. We want to extend a warm thank you to express our gratitude for you.
Warm greetings and a very Happy Holiday Season!
